Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Everything I Never Told You, the debut novel by Celeste Ng, is the beautifully and gently told story of the Lee family living in Ohio in the 1970s. The themes of not belonging and not communicating recur with every character throughout the book. The adult characters, James and Marilyn, make choices that are not likable; yet, you want to understand them. The book leaves you sad and wishing that you could undo some of the choices and mend what is broken.
